"My attorneys have advised me to seek help from friends in the form of letters to the judge on my behalf"....Blah, Blah, Blah... Pfft! Please.. Abramoff...Nice timing for a man who is giving the dirt on his pals in the Vanity Fair magazine next month.

SPB...Patrick posted a few days ago that the early sentencing was good news. I still can't figure out why.
Can you help?

OK guys, I have another question or thought....If I were one of Mr. A's former friends, would I consider this
e-mail a thinly veiled threat? I just got to thinking about the fact that if
this guy contacted me, would I think
he was looking for an edge?

I'm just wondering who the "acquaintance was that forwarded the email to Inside the Beltway.
Was it Delay? I don't know why, but I think it was Grover Norquist for some reason.

Grandnuk:

Thanks for the clarification. I wasn't sure what you referring to. Anyway, to answer your question. Abramoff has already sign, sealed, delivered his conviction when he decided to plead bargain last year. Now, that Abramoff is giving a lot of more information about his ties with his friends and his "kiss and tell" interview with Vanity Fair, Abramoff is making sure that those friends get a nail in their coffin. Remember, his friends distancing themselves from Abramoff when Abramoff was indicted last year. Because his friends didn't come to his rescue and said that they didn't know Abramoff too well (Bush and DeLay), Abramoff decided to bring down his friends and take a plea bargain. He figures that he has nothing to lose to spill the beans. And you see how quickly Cunningham was sentencing on fraud in California. I am sure that Cunningham will give a lot more information with ties with DeLay/Abramoff/Enron/Bush Administration. Cunningham won't last that long in that cell block. When Fitz mention an early sentencing is good. It is good. With Abramoff so quickly to work with authorities and naming names, his trial will be more speedy than Libby. Libby is fighting his case like the herd animal. Yes, Libby's trial is not until next year, but who is to say if or when the Bush Administration turn on Libby between now and next year with information that is slowly leaking out. After all, we didn't know Abramoff was going to plea bargain and start naming names. Abramoff's case is easier whereas Libby is making it harder on himself.

For some reason soap comes to mine.
I think I heard that in the TV show Prisonbreak as one of the prisoners said that while at Fox River jail in Chicago. Well anyway can you blame Abramoff as he said earlier he needs money and help. Look Libby's begging for money on the web so Abramoff ask the public to send letters of support next DeLay will do both. Can you really blame these guys they see that the public allows Bush to do what ever he wants and lies with no one saying anything. I guess they believe we're still being tricked so they just took on the Bush policy and do the same.

All,

More is the news:

1. Senate Votes to Raise Debt Limit: 9 trillion.

http://abcnews.go.com/Politics/wireStory?id=1732997


And we are not the end of 2006!

2. My favorite from Americablog:

Let's create a list of every idiotic thing George Bush has done in the past five years
by John in DC - 3/16/2006 02:22:00 PM
Seriously, I want to compose a real list of every idiocy, every scandal, every mistake, everything. For example, things like:
• No one could have imagined the levees would breach
• lied about WMD in Iraq (for example, I'd like dates of specific times they claimed to have found WMDs during the invasion, there were at least 6 or so occasions)
• pre-war lies - mohammad atta in czech republic, saddam hussein ties to al qaeda, etc. detail all of them in one-liners
• Mission Accomplished
• White House energy commission
• biggest deficit ever
• Brownie, heck of a job
• Bernie Kerik hired, fired
• Harriet Miers
• Valerie Plame outed
• Scooter Libby indicted
• Claude Allen arrested
• Armstrong Williams paid off
• Maggie Gallagher paid off
• Jeff Gannon

And they forgot to mention:
1. Bush's new Webster Dictionary of vocabulary words called "Bushisms."
2. The bailing out of 9 qualified cabinet members in his second term.

3. The hiring of incompetent and no experience staff members.

What Americanblog forgot to mention is what Bush did right in the last five years.

1. NOMINIATING AND HIRING OF PATRICK J. FITZGERALD AS THE SPECIAL PROSECUTOR FOR THE CIA LEAK CASE.

Did you also see the post for all the names that could apply to Bush?
The list goes on and on!
An never ending thread.
Some of the posts are pretty nasty as you can probably imagine, we are talking about GWB. One of the worst Presidents of all time!

Jodi,

The list of names for Bush will be just a big as the pages in the bible. Yes. worst President ever.

Speaking of Americablog, Americablog wrote to MSNBC President Kaplan about the finding of Chris Matthews. Here is Kaplan's response via email to Americablog:

Interesting in the news:

Bush's National Security Strategy. Drum roll please...:

From Thinkprogess.org:

NATIONAL SECURITY -- THREE YEARS LATE, BUSH RELEASES NEW SECURITY STRATEGY: The President of the United States is required by law to present a national security strategy every year. Tellingly, during his first five years in office, President Bush produced only one, in 2002, which offered up the now discredited doctrine of preventive war to justify the war in Iraq. Today, the administration will release its second national security strategy. "In his revised version, Bush offers no second thoughts about the preemption policy," stating flatly that it "remains the same."

There you go!

Homeland Security report card. Drum roll please...:

"The Department of Homeland Security received an F on cyber security for the third straight year, at a time when “assaults against government information systems” have skyrocketed."

Breaking News: Here is Gale Norton's replacement:

From Thinkprogress.org:

"Breaking news from Reuters:
President George W. Bush on Thursday chose Idaho Gov. Dirk Kempthorne as his choice to replace Gale Norton as Interior secretary, a Republican official said.
Bush was expected to make a formal announcement at 5:30 p.m. EST on Thursday.
UPDATE: In 2003, Kempthorne was rumored to be Bush’s choice to head the EPA. He didn’t end up getting the job,

UPDATE II: Kempthorne has very close ties to the same industries he would oversee in the Interior Department. In his last reelection campaign, he raised $86,000 “from timber, mining and energy industries” that wanted greater access to national forests in his state:"

Justice is croked to in Europe.
The International Court in The Hague is framing Milosevic for massmurder. The man had nothing to do with it semms to be the real story. The judges are overruling when Milosevic speakes and deny him to ask several legal questions during most time in the court. Now he is dead! Strange don't you think? There is a video in the link and the court is speaking English.Click on my nickname.

Chris "Tweety" Matthews has changed his tune. Maybe it is because he got busted acceptin fees (or bribes) for promoting the GOP. From the website crooks and liars:

"MATTHEWS: I always thought Bush was more popular than his policies. I keep saying it, and I keep being wrong on this. Bush is not popular. I'm amazed when 50 percent of the people don't like him--just don't like this guy. Thirty-nine percent like him. Are you surprised? Does that fit with the world you walk in?"

What a hypercrite! Everywhere I have gone today, everyone is tired of Bush. And with his polls in the tank, he is still in denial. But, not Gerbil George. Gerbil George thinks by jumping on his wheel, running real hard, and staying the course that things will change. That is the definition of insanity!

Good night all!

I'm not so sure about Tweety. I think that he is going to go back to kissing Republican butt in no time.
But I was also reading on C&L that he was making comments about alcoholism and said that he knew something about alcoholics that stopped drinking and were so rigid in their thinking and ways. I didn't know that Chris was alcoholic. You learn something new every day.

All the Republicans are pretending to distance themselves from Bush to save their jobs in November. I used to believe maybe they were coming to their senses, but now I know better. It's all an act.

By the way, Happy St Patricks Day!

Happy Friday and Saint Patrick's Day!

Jodi:

About Matthews, he is playing double sword with the GOP. One minute praising them and then he questions Bush's polls. Matthews is getting a lot of pressure from the viewers especially the sory about taking fees. So, he trying to save his job! Happy Patrick's day to you also!

Today news from Truthout.org by Jason Leopold about the CIA Leak. Here is an excerpt :

Obstruction Trial May Jog Libby's Memory
By Jason Leopold
t r u t h o u t | Report
Friday 17 March 2006

" However, that defense strategy may unravel when Special Prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald calls to the stand some of Libby's former White House colleagues who have promised to tell a much different story about Libby's alleged memory lapse, according to six sources close to Fitzgerald's investigation.
A secretary for Ted Wells, one of Libby's defense attorneys, said Wells was traveling. The secretary wrote down questions for Wells and said she passed them on to him. But he did not respond. A second and third attempt to reach Wells was unsuccessful."

http://www.truthout.org/docs_2006/031706Z.shtml

Fitz, I knew that you had witness that will contradict the little soldier's gilligan defense. I hope that you comb through Libby's performance evaluations of the two postions that he had held.

More Biloxi news:

1. This story is hard to believe. Wasted money:

From Raw Story:

Report: Millions in Katrina funds wasted
"In the aftermath of Katrina, the feds spent $10 million to renovate and furnish 240 rooms in Alabama that housed just six hurricane survivors, congressional investigators found."

2. Buffoon Lieberman is finally challenged:

From Raw Story:

Senator takes issue with challenger's tone

"Lamont has blasted Lieberman for his support of the Iraq war, calling him, "Republican Light." During his kickoff speech said that unlike the senator, he would never be called, "Bush's favorite Democrat."

3. Update on Chris Matthews:

From Thinkprogess.org
MSNBC UPDATE:
On Wednesday, ThinkProgress reported that three interest groups confirmed they paid speaking fees to Chris Matthews. Yesterday, we were contacted by MSNBC President Rick Kaplan who elaborated the blanket denial (“Totally untrue…totally”) he provided to ThinkProgress pre-publication. According to Kaplan, while these groups may have paid fees for Matthews to speak, the fees did not go to Matthews directly, but to a charity of Matthews’s choosing. Kaplan added that NBC policy prohibited anchors from personally accepting speaking fees and anyone who did so “would risk being fired.”
And so Kaplan says!

4.Is anyone is thinking about what John Ashcroft is doing lately, the man who nominated Fitzgerald to the position as Special Prosecutor? From Thinkprogress.org:

"The New York Times profiles former Attorney General John Ashcroft’s new life as a Washington lobbyist. Ashcroft tries to hard to position himself as the anti-Abramoff. But for someone with no business experience, “What is he selling other than connections and knowledge of how to game the system from being attorney general?”

Ashcroft a lobbyist?????

Speaking of St. Patirck's day, I just read this article of Gerbile Bush's speech on this day.

From United Press International:

"As he accepted the shamrocks from Irish Prime Minister Bertie Ahern , Bush said, "I'm proud to accept the bowl of shamrocks as a symbol of our friendship."
Bush remarked that 34 million people in the United States trace some linage to Ireland, but on St. Patrick's Day, "I suspect that number jumps a little."

And that's it from the mangler-in-chief. He has no clue about the Irish tradition, nor the history about the Irish immigrant or desent in this country. He called the "shamrock" a sign of friendship? Isn't it for luck? He needs to read the history of St. Patrick Day. St. Patrick's Day is a traditional day for spiritual renewal and offering prayers for Irish people worldwide.

Well, if you were "lucky" enough to listen to him, you would have been reminded about the 'priests,
nuns who educated the Irish immigrants, and are now part of the
education for Latinos and African Americans". Can't believe he's still working his "faith based" garbage on St. Patrick's Day.

True, true, Grandmnuk!

Bush certain;y doesn't understand and appreciate all ethnicities in this country. Just seems to me that whenever there is a holiday of a particular race, Bush doen't know what to say or act. I shook my head when on MLK Day, that Bush read the Emmancipation Proclamation. And why on that day that he chooses to read that? Because he doesn't get it? Or when when there is Cinco de Mayo, Bush starts to speak little Spanish verbiage. Yes, it is irriating to hear Bush's "faith-based" verbiage. But, you know people know a phony when they see and hear one. That is why Bush is label an idiot to international citizens because he doesn't know their culture and traditions.
